“For more than 40 years, ZEST has been a global leader and pioneer of overdenture treatment technologies focused on improving the lives of edentulous patients, including the market leading LOCATOR® Attachment System,” said Steve Schiess, ZEST’s CEO. “The acquisition of Danville will enable ZEST to expand its broad range of treatment solutions to patients caring for their natural teeth, as well. Danville’s high quality line of dental consumables, market leading micro-etching and air abrasion products and unique offerings, including Perioscopy, will strongly complement the clinical solutions available at ZWST today. We look forward to enhancing the brand recognition of Danville products and supporting the dealer and distributor networks pivotal to Danville’s success.”

Garrett Sato, Danville’s CEO, added, “The combination of ZEST and Danville will produce a stronger combined entity. The application of ZEST’s marketing and education capabilities to the Danville product portfolio will increase the number of clinician users and, in turn, solidify dealer relationships. The timing is excellent as it coincides with Danville’s launch of BULK EZ™, a highly innovative dual cure restorative composite designed to be the most reliable bulk fill solution for the clinician.”

Sriram Venkataraman, Partner at Avista, said, “The combination of ZEST and Danville’s market-leading portfolio is part of our commitment to driving the next phase of ZEST’s growth. The addition of Danville’s compelling product set to ZEST’s strong portfolio will further position the company to continue delivering valuable innovation to the dental community.”

Michael Morrissey, Managing Principal of Inverness Graham Investments, said, “We congratulate Garrett Sato and his team on fantastic execution of our shared strategic vision for Danville. The strategic logic of a combination with ZEST is compelling, and we are confident in a prosperous future for the combined company.”

Deutsche Bank advised ZEST on the transaction and Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP acted as its legal counsel. Danville received legal advice from Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP.
